Ad*Access Collection, at Duke University

Duke University’s Ad*Access collection compiles images from over 7,000 ads published in newspapers and magazines between 1911 and 1955.

Also of note on this site are the brief but informative history pages for each industry.

Although the archive covers radio and television and personal-hygiene ads in addition to transportation ads, it’s the images of train and airline advertisements that most interest me.
